Blu Teases Vivo XI+ Flagship
Blu Products today said it plans to announce a new flagship phone at the end of the month. The Vivo XI+ will feature 128 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM. Blu didn't say what other features the phone might have. The new device arrives in the midst of a revised strategy for Blu. The company says its previous pattern of releasing a lot of phones each year left it unable to support them well with software updates and parts. Moving forward, Blu will focus on fewer phones in order to better support them down the road. Blu says this change will deliver a "renewed commitment to quality" and "stronger" phones that are more well thought-out. More details about Blu's new flagship will be revealed later this month.
Blu's latest flagship is the Vivo XI+, a metal and glass phone that features a liquid design, a solid spec sheet, and Android Oreo. The phone has a notched 2:1 screen, dual cameras on the back, and an octa-core processor with 6 GB of RAM running the show.

Blu Products today announced its flagship phone for the second half of the year, the Vivo XI+. This phone drops the mostly metal build of older Blu phones in favor of a glass front, metal frame, and plastic rear that are assembled with a smooth profile all around.
Blu's latest "flagship" phone is really more mid-range, but it's unique as a $250 phone with wireless charging and triple rear cameras. It doesn't have everything, but the specs are decent, and if your priorities are screen and battery, it might be worth a look.
